  1. What is jQuery?
  2. How does it help us as developers?
  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?

#2

1- jQuery is a javascript based library that helps developers to build javascript apps faster and easily.
2- It has got functions and support for day to day javascript based tasks that we can use easily. By using it we can create slideshows, popup menus, drop down menus, advanced form elements, manipulate DOM and much more easily. Its got plugins that are built for it to achieve extra functionality in your web app.
3- uncompressed is a version to understand it or read it and compressed version that is minified version is to use in web apps coz its smaller in size and it has no comments, spaces or extra stuff that we do not need.

  1. jQuery is javascript library with tons of functions to help developers build functioning web page interaction.
  2. jquery helps maintain ease of use and readability, especially with working with the DOM and maintaining compatability with different browsers.
  3. The uncompressed version is readable and maintanable, The minified version is as small as possible to allow for the script to load faster on pages.

#4
  1. What is jQuery?
  2. jQuery is an open-source JavaScript Library designed to simplify the client-side scripting og HTML.

  3. How does it help us as developers?
  4. jQuery allows developers to invoke a lot of common tasks that require many lines of JavaScript code to accomplish, and wraps them into methods that you can call with a single line of code.

  5. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
  6. The minified has removed all of the comments and indention allowing for the fastest loading speed when visiting the website. The uncompressed file is for developers that want to see the functions in a readable manner.


#5
  1. Is a free javascript library
  2. fewer lines, lets you create animations, ajax requests, image effects, etc; it also lets you create cross-browser JS code.
  3. Uncompressed is used for documentation and understanding purposes, the minified version is the one you should upload in your web server for clients to use.

#6

1. What is jQuery?
jQuery is a Javascript library that gives you access to a range of functions to accomplish many things, which would otherwise take a lot more lines of code to do.

2. How does it help us as developers?
As developers, it helps us by providing a means to quickly complete problems already solved by others.

3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
Uncompressed is a much larger file that contains comments, whitespace and other characters which make it easier for us to read and modify.
Minified is a smaller file that we would use in production to reduce the load time for our users.


#7

1. jQuery is a free JavaScript library which makes it quicker and easier to build JS webpages and web apps. The library comes in a single .js file that can be linked to the webpage and the code can be accessed by calling various functions.

2. jQuery makes it easier to write powerful JS apps by using the code for common task like XML (Ajax) requests, image slideshows, drop-down menus, etc. Another advantage is that the jQuery JS code is compatible with different popular browsers and audited a lot which reduces the risk of security flaws and bugs.

3. The uncompressed .js file is easier to read and modify which makes it better to use while developing. The minified .js file is the version you want to use in production since the file is way smaller (23kb compared to 160kb) and therefore quicker for visitors to download.

1-

jQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps.
jQuery makes it easy to write powerful JavaScript apps and create eye-catching animated effects rivalling those of Flash movies. Amongst other things,

2-

Often with jQuery you can write a single line of code to achieve what would have taken 10-20 lines of regular JavaScript code.
jQuery lets you easily write cross-browser JavaScript code.

3-

The uncompressed .js file and the minified .js file: the first is for developer who want to understand wat is in the code, the second (also for developers) is for the use, there are no comment , it is difficult to read but it’s quicker to download

What is jQuery?
- JQuery is a library that makes it quicker and easier to build JavaScript webpages and web apps.

How does it help us as developers?
- It allows code to be written more efficiently and therefore saves time and space.

Why do we have 2 versions of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
- Uncompressed is larger though easier to interact with, whereas the minified version removes all non-necessary characters and white space.

  1. jQuery is a javascript library, that is simplified and powerful.
  2. It helps us speeds up the development by using its library, we dont have to code from scratch the functionality when interacting with the DOM and behaviour of the web page.
  3. minified is used for the production use, which makes the code compact, small and lightweight, on the other hand uncompressed is used for development in the event that you need to read the code for debugging purposes.

#11
  1. jQuery is a very popular, free javascript based libary dedicated to building webpages and webapps
  2. jQuery helps the developer build animations, Ajax requests, DOM manipulation, image effects, and user interface elements.
  3. The uncompressed version is easy to read and modify but is bigger in size while the minified version is small and quick but less verbose

#12
  1. What is jQuery?
    jQuery is a rich, easy to use multi browser library that helps developers create cool Javascript based webpages.
  2. How does it help us as developers?
    It helps us by letting us write a single line of code instead of many, many lines.
  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    Uncompressed is for developers to study, minified is for common usage.

#13
  1. What is jQuery?
    It is a JavaScript library that provides tools that works on all browsers such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, ect.
  2. How does it help us as developers?
    Speeds up building applications and allows manipulation of the dom to be easier and with less code(currently you can build decent applications with vanilla JavaScript)
  3. Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed?
    minified is used for deployment because it is a smaller file so it is faster. However it is harder to debug if you use it for development and that’s when you use the uncompressed

#14

1- jQuery is a javascript library
2- It makes easy and fast writing code for many things
3- We have minified version for production phase code and uncompressed for development phase. We can change or study code from uncompressed version, but is much long than minified and that affect to time loading


#15

What is jQuery? JavaScript technique
How does it help us as developers? it is easier, less code
Why do we have 2 version of jQuery - minified and uncompressed? one is for the common users and the other one for developers
